Troy Tulowitzki Injury: Rockies SS Hopes To Avoid Disabled List

The Colorado Rockies are currently on a three-game winning streak, but will they be able to continue it without shortstop Troy Tulowitzki? The Rockies star left Wednesday's game against the Houston Astros with a strained left groin following the sixth inning.

After the game, Tulowitzki said that he'll have a better idea if he will need to head to the disabled list as a result of the injury (via the Denver Post):

"It's really sore. I will know more (Thursday) when I get treatment. I will know then if I can't go and need an MRI and it is a DL situation," Tulowitzki said. "I want to stay off the DL. But if I can't play, I can't play.

Marco Scutaro moved over to shortstop and DJ LeMahieu played second base; however, if Tulowitzki heads to the DL, Chris Nelson, eligible to come off the DL from his own injury, would likely gain plenty of playing time at second base while Scutaro takes over at short.
